    Yes, but my unnumbered copy sounds exactly the same. ;)

    And if it like some of my other numbered DCC CeeDees, the slipcase is where the numbered sticker is affixed. I know this is sealed but...
    And is the number that important?

    No, not as far as sound quality goes. It's only a collector thing.

    I figured as much and felt that once the package is opened the slipcover can find its way onto other copies.

    But how about numbered LPs, specifically DCC? I never think I have understood this, other than from a collectors standpoint.

    I mean, I have heard some manufacturers stop pressing after X amount of copies. Do they then make another stamper from the old plating or do they go back and create another lacquer and plate it or ???
    If they go back only to the plating, how many more stampers can be made before it is no longer any good? I suppose they identify the next generation stamper, yes? Is there anywhere I can go where this is explained?

    Terry,

    I'm sure there are others who can explain this a lot better than I can, but....

    It is thought by some that the best pressings of stampers in general are the first post 500-1000 pressings. I don't believe that this was ever an issue regarding DCC due to their extremely rigid manufacturing qualifications.

    I'll leave the rest of your enquiries to those more qualified than myself. :)
